Magnificent Sistine Chapel Ceiling Reproduction Exhibition (English Martyrs Church Goring-By-Sea)

There will be a wonderful ceiling exhibition as part of the Jubilee celebration of the church’s building. Gary Bevans is the artist and the church Deacon who has completed the only reproduction of the Sistine Chapel ceiling anywhere in the world.
In 1987 Gary saw the Sistine Chapel and came back with the idea that he could reproduce it on the very plain curved ceiling of the English Martyrs Church. On his visit to Rome, he observed that the Chapel’s ceiling in terms of size and shape was almost the same ceiling as the ceiling of the parish church in Goring-By-Sea. Working in the evenings and in the weekends, it would take Gary 5½ years to complete this very special artwork that covers a surface of 3500 sq ft. Gary completed this replica in 1993 which remains a major achievement which has to be seen to be believed. Entry is free and everyone is welcome to enjoy such a wonderful exhibition. The exhibition is open weekdays, on Monday mornings from 10am-1pm and Tuesdays to Fridays 10am-4pm. Entry is free. It is a great occasion for all the family and talks are given and a display area demonstrates the painting of the ceiling and a video completes the story. People attending the exhibition will be amazed.

'Send Us Some Women' - A talk by Dianne Mannering (Mill Road, Arundel, BN18 9PA)

There were very few women aboard the First Fleet which sailed to Australia in 1787. Once settled in Botany Bay, Governor Phillip asked the Home Secretary Lord Sydney to send out some women. Newgate Gaol was full of women, murderers, thieves, pick-pockets, drunks and prostitutes. The Lady Julian set sail in July 1789 with its reluctant cargo. This is the story of their voyage and how these women reinvented themselves and helped found Australia. Doors open at 7pm. Entry for non-members is £8, members £6.
